Apply for crediting of previous vocational training


You can have your previous vocational training credited to your training period.

This shortens your training time.

The following professional training courses can be credited:

  • attending a vocational school,
  • a vocational preparation measure (e.g. vocational preparation year, basic vocational training year).

Credit will only be granted if you submit an application together with your training company.

The federal states have different regulations for the crediting. If a federal state has not made any legal regulations on this, the competent authority decides on a case-by-case basis whether your previous vocational training will be credited.

In Saxony-Anhalt, there is no regulation on the crediting of vocational training to the training period. This means that you do not have to meet any specific requirements. It will be decided on a case-by-case basis whether your previous vocational training will be credited.

You can find out which requirements you must also meet at the competent chamber.

  • Proof of previous vocational training, for example by:
    • Diploma
    • Certificate

Contact the chamber responsible for your training company.

Together with your training company, you submit an application for crediting of your previous vocational training.

The competent chamber decides on:

  • whether your previous vocational training is taken into account,
  • whether your training period will be shortened,
  • which credit period is taken into account.

You can also shorten your training period if you have a higher school leaving certificate or already have completed vocational training. In addition, you can shorten the training period if you have already gained professional experience in part-time jobs. If you have already acquired the skills and knowledge elsewhere, you can also apply for a shortening of the training period.

Every training occupation has a minimum training period that you must meet.
